Get cozy and bake some cookies this weekend – it’s a good way to relieve stress and have something delicious to snack on with the family. We added savory ingredients like bacon and duck fat to make these uniquely D’Artagnan cookie recipes. Read on for the details.

1. Chocolate-Orange Olive Oil Cookies

Is there anything more comforting than a chocolate chip cookie? Try this recipe for olive oil cookies packed with dark chocolate chunks, walnuts, and orange zest for a sophisticated take on a classic flavor combination. This recipe should make about 18 cookies, which is plenty for snacking and coffee breaks.


2. Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

We love adding smoky bacon to sweet treats! These easy peanut butter bacon cookies strike just the right balance of sweet and salty. We won’t tell if you eat them for breakfast – they seem like a complete meal, right?


3. Truffle Butter Shortbread

Is it a cookie or a cracker? All we know is that this easy recipe for black truffle butter shortbread is great for charcuterie and cheese boards. Good to have on hand, shortbread can be topped with your favorite condiments for a quick and easy power snack.


4. Maple Oatmeal Cookies with Bacon & Apple

Our oatmeal cookie recipe is studded with crumbled bacon, toasted pecans, and two kinds of apples (maybe those that you found softening in the back of the fridge). Sweet and salty, chewy and crisp, and delicious anytime!


5. Duck Fat Biscochitos Cookies

Try our biscochito cookie recipe with duck fat, anise & citrus zest. These cookies are a holiday staple in the American Southwest, and we swapped out lard for duck fat to give them a Southwest France spin. Extra credit if you have a duck-shaped cookie cutter.


6. Cranberry-Chestnut Rugelach

We used our fully-cooked chestnuts and dried cranberries in this recipe, but you could substitute with walnuts and any dried fruits you have in the cupboard.  These rugelach are fun to make and easier than you might think. The recipe should yield about 4 dozen cookies, which will provide plenty of snacks for a week!
